On the cover of Time magazine at age 26, on the Broadway stage, in Hollywood, from Tin Pan Alley to Paris, George Gershwin dominated the scene of the early twentieth century. Join us for a delightful evening of song, including excerpts from Porgy and Bess, and standards like “I Got Rhythm,” “Embraceable You,” “The Man I Love,” “Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off,” and “Love Walked In.” You’ll hear rarities from Hollywood, solo songs, and some of Gershwin’s own piano arrangements and Preludes.
